and communication security of osama bin laden is, he would not be online in direct communication. he shows up at various points. there is a suggestion that he was indeed in the conversation. people have asked us, why would you report all these details? our sources have made it clear that when the leader who reported the communications -- it was enough information for al qaeda to walk back the cat. we left out some details from our initial report. believe,oint, we especially since our sources were giving us this information, that it was important to explain the current context of threats. point, i think it is a tough one. cannot argue with the fact that u.s. special operations forces in 2011 found osama bin laden and killed him. that was a huge blow to the organization. that, years leading up to a lot of analysts believe that bin laden was out of touch. they figured he did not play a day-to-day role. the organization has devolved into affiliates. one of the stories i remember writing after the raid -- bin laden played an important role in terms of managing this organization with these various
. these are armed attacks with r.p.g.'s, et cetera. it does make you wonder the kill of osama bin laden, a profound moral victory, didn't end the effectiveness of al qaeda. this is being manned by al zawahari who is at large. maybe we didn't end al qaeda by going -- >>steve: maybe we busted into the centralized al qaeda h.q. now it's fragmented all over. some are wondering whether or not you look at what happened in benghazi, where they killed four brave americans, clearly some sort of al qaeda-linked terror attack, and who's been held accountable. nobody. even though we knew, "the new york times" talked to some of the suspects and others have since then, we haven't done anything. now some are wondering is this a gross overreaction to some intel? susan rice, who is currently running the n.s.a., reportedly sees similarities trying to make sure this is not a repeat of what happened last year. here's lindsay graham and bill crystal. >> they are taking the right approach to this. benghazi was a complete failure. the threats were real there, reporting was real and we dropped the ball. we've learned from
you continuously say that osama bin laden was dead and al qaeda was on the run when in fact now you've closed more embassies than ever before in u.s. history because of terrorism? that's not exactly the question he got last night. >>steve: the extraordinary thing is given all the news these days, the first time we've heard from the president of the united states in a live tv environment asked questions of him was by jay leno. clearly the president, he selected the softball venues because they worked in the past. entertainment tonight, people magazine, got some criticism from the mainstream media but that's only because he wouldn't talk to them. he knew he had to go directly to the low-information voter on shows like this. while president is out banging his campaign for the economy, he went right to jay leno and he painted a picture where things are getting better and my policies, they're working. >> the economy is growing. the unemployment rate has been ticking down. and housing is improving. we've seen the deficit cut in half. health care costs are actually going up slower than the
is in afghanistan, alongside osama bin laden and kaurted and went back to prison and escaped from prison. >> what is going on with these prison breaks? >> it's scary. >> this was while ago but we had someone the last couple of weeks as well. >> the last couple of weeks very dramatic prison breaks. over a thousand taliban prisoners were able to escape in the hinterlands. a couple of days ago 4,000 prisoners walked out of leppo prisoner after islamic state of iraq launched an attack on that prison. we have seen prison breaks in iraq and abu ghraib and elsewhere. some of them gotten out we never will see again but unfortunately we will see some again and we will find out they are as dedicated what they were sent there to begin with. >> general, what do we need to do? what is the strategy moving forward? because when it comes to the middle east, obviously, we are getting out of iraq and afghanistan. we are helping some of the rebels some syria. seems like we are relying on drones to go after so many targets now. what is the strategy moving forward? >> i think we have probably done about as well as we
on the people who actually attacked us on 9/11. today al qaeda is on the run and osama bin laden is dead. >> there are reports, too, the leader who replaced osama bin laden has given two speeches saying the muslim world needs to unite, said he disagrees with the u.s. policy going on in egypt as well. also, this is the 27th day of ramadan, also known as the night of power, the time when moham d mohammed -- if you're a believer, when mohammed got the first versus for the koran. >> the massive prison brakes across the region. >> not everybody believes al qaeda is on the run. >> apparently al qaeda doesn't agree. they strung more than 1,000 people from prisons in various countries. >> last week. >> 1200 prisoners in a single break. >> benghazi. >> how do you do that? >> a massive one at abu ghraib prison in iraq, too. here is the general on the al qaeda threat that we face. >>. >> certainly after 9/11 we clearly had al qaeda on the run because we responded to quickly to that threat and intercepted a lot of other threats and killed a bunch of leaders in the process. they have had time to reg

-zawahiri was second in command now first in command because osama bin laden has been killed. apparently he was having communications with the leader of al qaeda's arabian peninsula affiliate. a gentleman named nasiral wuhayshi. that is what fox news has been able to confirm, what originally set off the fear there was a major and imminent attack underway. i think what's become more scary, judge, is yesterday during the press briefing with jay carney, the president's spokesperson, he would not rule out the fact this could be on united states soil as well. >> i hate when they do that. they shouldn't scare people nedlessly. first of all, anything is possible and anything is potential. the question is is it more likely than not. the two pictures on the skraoeb, when the white house -- on the screen, when the revealed they were having communication with each other, and i'm glad they have it, we've declared war on it, they are in charge of that organization, they're not americans, they have every right to listen to them, did the white house reveal what we know about them in order to justify the president sp
, we are accomplishing what we set out to do. because of you, osama bin laden is no more. because of you, al qaeda's top ranks have been handled. the core of al qaeda in afghanistan and pakistan is on the way to defeat. that happened because of you. because of you, more afghans are re-claiming their communities, their markets, their schools, their towns. they have a chance to forge their own future. because of you, more afghans are trained in stepping up and defending their own country. because of you and to preserve the gains you fought and bled for, we are going to make sure that afghanistan is never again a source of attacks against our country. that happened because of you. so the war in afghanistan will end, for you that means fewer deployments, more training time, preparing for the future, getting back to what marines do better than anybody else on earth, amphibious operations. it means more time here on the home front with your families, your wives, your husbands, your kids. but, of course, the end of the war in afghanistan doesn't mean the end of threats to our nation. as
the delay of the criminal trial for osama bin laden's son-in-law and former al-qaeda spokesman sulaiman abu ghaith. in delaware, the sequester has meant lengthy employee furloughs at the clerk's office of the bankruptcy court, resulting in reduced customer service hours and the postponement of it upgrades that would aid the efficient resolution of those important cases. the cuts have not been deeper only because that office is already working with 40% fewer staff despite an increasing caseload, including many time-intensive mega cases, which are so important for the country's recovery. the delaware federal public defender's office has had to furlough its defenders 15 days this year, essentially cancelling the criminal docket every friday for the rest of the year. every day the public defenders are furloughed is another day that defendants spend in pre-trial incarceration, at a cost to the taxpayer of more than $100 per day. the defender's office has also had to sharply curtail expenditures for investigators and experts, which may be leading to a decrease in the quality of representation, le
of osama bin laden and the doctor was burned as a source and his life was put in jeopardy. limits numbers of people could know what internal al-qaeda deliberations are so talk from the sours is risky. >> heather: the month of august usually active for terrorist organizations. 15 years ago this week, twin bombings in kenya, tans -- tanzania claimed lives. next month marks the benghazi attack in libya that killed the ambassador and four americans. is this a reaction to benghazi? >> guest: they are linked. they are clearly a sense in the wider world we have switched from offense to defense in the war on terror. islamists since in this area that they have opportunity. while we haveack our commitment in the broader middle east the threat has not gone down. it wasn't a problem with the former president. it wasn't a problem with our president but had to do with the nature of the ideology and the armaments spreading in the area. >> heather: thank you for joining us. >> gregg: republicans waging a big family nude pitting chris christie against rand paul. our political needers are here and will wei
is alive and osama bin laden is dead and the construction of core al-qaeda and noncore al-qaeda is part of this. the president has taken a more capacious view of islamism and running the whole spectrum like from the muslim brotherhood whom he supported for their bid once upon a time. they are islamist and they are moderate with whom the united states can do business. and all the way over to including what they call and what jay carney calls core al-qaeda that these are radical islamist and theocrates that want to impose the twisted form of this phase on to countries. and the gradient delineations across the spectrum of what it is to be an islamist and mustheocrat gets the administration in role tangles as they try to explain the difference between good, bad, different and inside and outside. what americans know when you close down 19 embassy and withdrawing all american personnel out of the strugem. americans who reasonably ignore or try to ignore what is happening in that part of the world are called to attention. >> let me jump in for a second. i will talk to congressman peter king on
us on 9/11, and now al qaeda is on the run, and osama bin laden is dead. >> i think it is indisputable that the elimination of osama bin laden was a major a couple smith in the effort against al qaeda. clearesident has been that the threat from all kind of qaeda very much still looms. , our action that we take extra ordinarily capable women and men in uniform, the actions that they take in order to demonstratesfight, how serious we take the threat. no one should be under any illusion that the threat does not still exist. we have numerous communications about what we need to do continually as a nation to elvesct our cells -- ours i the terrorists who mean us harm. the fact that we continue to do those things means that the threat is still will -- real, so we need to be vigilant. i do not think it is a fair reading of the efforts we make , to saythose terrorists it is not real. he has not made that distinctive. he has said that they are decimated. leadership, the leadership that attacked the united states on september 11, 2001, has been decimated. the al qaeda core has
as it was pre-9/11. it's exactly what osama bin laden said it was. it's more of a change. if you read the magazine if you listen to the videos and all the statements that they point out, they sent their best bombmaker in the world to run part of their organization in algeria, because algeria was the training ground from which they sent their fighters from their different fronts from all over the world. we have this sense that we want to divide all of this to say yemen is the most dangerous area. tomorrow it's algeria, then north africa, and now syria. the fact is al qaeda's ideology is what's at the core. that's why they're called the base. the base is the uniting factor. and that's really where the threat comes from. they're taking more territory and spreading their ideology, and that's what makes them dangerous. >> lara logan, good to see you. thank you. >>> and a massive pipeline explosion this morning in illinois. it happened near erie. flames shot 300 feet in the air. they could be seen for 20 miles. people in 80 homes were forced out, but most are now aloud b
? >> remember how osama bin laden was operating, it could take three weeks. he's issuing general guidance, more higher level guidance and leaving the tactics up to genuine it's. >> you tried to get him when you were head of national intelligence. i assume the u.s. is still trying to get him. why is it so hard to get ayman al zawahiri? >> who is that guy in our country, richard jewell, he disappeared in our country. >> the outgoing cia, the deputy director, he gave an interviews to the wall street journal in which he said syria is probably the most important issue in the world today because of where it is currently heading. he's deeply concerned about chemical weapon stockpiles, other weapons in syria getting into the hands of al qaeda and others. is this the biggest national security threat the u.s. faces right now? >> i would say as far as the geopolitical situation, i would agree with mike morel. it's not just the chemical weapon. if you look at the place that syria occupies, the funnel for iranian aid going to hezbollah, so it's a life line for hezbollah, it's iran's beach head, it has a bor
for the muslim brotherhood organization and he also stated that osama bin laden himself has been a member of the organization and he only left because of logistics issues egarding funding and embarrassment for the king if he is associated with bin laden. there are numerous evidences. we also have evidence the dissertation, written in the 1970's, he stated he was actually writing the theological foundations for al qaeda's organization. he is considered the spiritual leader of the brotherhood. here is numerous evidence, because the possibility of designating the muslim brotherhood as an international terrorist organization should definitely be out there. thank you. >> we love to have your opinions. >> well, this is a large topic area he is not the spiritual guide or leader for the muslim brotherhood. president morsi expressed his hope during a speech that they would be free, because that is a popular sentiment we have seen hroughout egypt. but that is not to dismiss the issue entirely. we should be careful about it. after 9/11, one of the first nanciers by al qaeda was designated by the bus
overreact -- i mean, osama bin laden was caught on tape saying he wanted to bleed america to the point of bankruptcy. and if 250,000 people take ciprol because there are tiny envelopes in washington, d.c., this is our own overreaction. it's self-destructive. >> homeland security and, again, i think the total budget's about $40 billion. if it had not been combined, maybe it would have been 32, 33 billion. so we're not talking about that large amount of money. in the overall picture, it has not been that draining. also you said where are bodies? well, if we hadn't stopped the london explosive plot, if we hadn't stopped the times square, the new york subway bombing, the -- actually, we got lucky in the michigan one, there's three or four thousand people right there, that's just three attacks i'm talking about, and there are any number of others that have been stopped. and again, i just wish the rest of the country used the nypd as the model because there's so much cooperation. if somebody does go to buy certain types of explosives, certain devices, that is told the nypd, and they can foll
rachel smolkin current deputy manager at "politico." stories ofrseen the the killing of osama bin laden come of the president's reelection campaign and you may know her from her great work with the politics team at usa today and the managing editor of the american journalism review. pendry andhel is jen who is not on your program. originally we were going to have an al jazeera reporter here but she has gone over to the mainstream and is now working for cnn, making her ineligible for the panel. agreed to step in and we appreciate that. she is the white house reporter for the huffington post and covers leadership on capitol hill. she joined huffington post a couple of years ago and spent years covering the legislative and executive wrenches of government for "rollcall." probably a walk in the park for her because she started covering the texas state legislature. again, stepping in for camille, so thank you for that. next to jen is john stanton who also has "rollcall" roots rate he is the chair of buzz feed here in washington. then smith, the editor described him as a reporter's reporter w
what i'm going to ask you for a one-word answer. do you believe that osama bin laden for five years in abbottabad pakistan without anyone in the pakistani military intelligence knowing about it? >> no, don't believe it. >> i'm going to ask you for a 10 word answer. [laughter] >> this is my opinion. i don't think general kayani newdow. i don't think the leadership confab don't think there is think there was a plan of what he was that this was 700 meters from the gates of west point. who knows what 700 meters are from the gates of west point but the reality is it was a distinct compound. it was like the fun house at the end of the street where people didn't at the same as everybody else in the neighborhood in an area where people are not actually trusting so somebody facilitated something. i buy into the idea that the ambassador and i were talking about. it probably was not official but someone who has a relationship with an official who is providing help. there is a delegate to ask questions that need to be asked. there's a failure of due diligence. >> sometimes if you read new was s
international concern. u.s. sources tell nbc news it was this man who replaced osama bin laden to head al qaeda that said he wanted to do something big. a massive attack during these, the final days of the muslim month of ramadan. the target wasn't very specific, but the assassins tapped for the job were. al qaeda's most capable branch located in yemen, but they were intercepted leading washington to close 20 posts at least through the weekend and issue travel alerts through august. >> we have to be continually vigilant and have been. >> reporter: today americans were told to leave yemen where al qaeda established a base. >> they have people that are very determined and very patient in attempting to carry out these attacks against the united states. >> reporter: they have especially skilled bomb makers. it was al qaeda in yemen that put an underwear bomb on a flight to detroit and sent a printer cartridge bomb to chicago. it's no surprise the man that took over from bin laden tapped his branch for a big attack. it's been creative, aggressive, and determined to attack the united states. yemeni o
of the criminal trial for osama bin laden's son-in-law. in delaware, my home state, the sequester has meant lengthy employee furloughs at the clerk's office of our bankruptcy court resulting in the postponement of the infrastructure of i.t. infrastructure. the cuts have not been deeper only because that office is already working with 40% fewer staff despite ab increasing case -- an increasing case load. the delaware federal public defender's office has had to furlough its defenders 15 days this year so far, essentially canceling the criminal docket every friday for the rest of this year. every day is another day defendants spend in pretrial incarceration at cost to taxpayers of more than $100 a day. the defender's office has had to sharply curtail expenditures for experts which may be leading to a decrease in the quality of our representation leading to longer prison terms and more avoidable it taxpayer expense. and, frankly, the picture looking forward is still bleaker. next year the federal public defenders' office nationwide are scheduled to take a 23% budget cut. in delaware this means
. that is no longer the case. osama bin laden is no longer their plotting against the u.s. and our allies. it does not mean there is not a continuing threat posed by al not mean ithat does has not changed in its way of using force. there are other ways to work with the international community to reach objectives. the president took a trip to africa where he highlighted some of the strong relationships the united states has there. this is the work that the president vowed to do when he took office, which is to rebuild some of the relationships that were in tatters when this president entered the oval office. that strengthens the united states on the international scene. it is good for broader national security interests. but it is something that the president and members of his team have to work on something -- have to work on every day. >> more than 100,000 people have been killed. that is effectively like wiping out the entire city of south bend, indiana. how many more people need to die before the u.s. does employ some use of force beyond humanitarian aid? >> what the president does is he is eva
. we knew osama bin laden was in pakistan but that was the extent of our knowledge. the way we kept the country safe was to go get the intelligence. according to the agency itself, the way we did that was by subjecting him, because he was subjected more than anybody else to enhanced interrogation techniques. why do i tell you all that history? this administration doesn't get it. they just don't and, obama made a speech here not too long ago. it was at the national defense university, maybe three months ago in may, and, basically said, okay, now we're returning back to the pre9/11 days, i.e., we're not at war anymore. we're going back to pre9/11, when it is just a law enforcement problem and we'll try to round up the bad guy when blows something up and we're no longer on a war footing, if you will in terms of thinking about the state we're in. i think that's dead wrong. i think it is an absolute total misreading where we find ourselves today. as i look at that part of the world, now, north africa, a good part of the middle east, not just afghanistan, where they launched 9/11 from but
